The Het Report – part 3

het team

Is the HET independent?
what part no
Independence was undermined by the involvement of the former RUC and PSNI officers
ruc
working for the HET. They managed the information from the C3 intelligence branch and undermined the HETs ability to demonstrate an independent approach to the handling of intelligence
undermining
Recommendation 11. The HET should implement an independent audit
process to verify that HET staff have the benefit of all appropriate intelligence material
held by the PSNI.
Are the victims’ families satisfied?
According to Het
yes of course
The HET procured an independent consulting company to undertake a series of surveys. To date each survey has identified high levels of satisfaction.

Her Majesty‟s Inspectorate of Constabulary has some concerns about how the families are selected.
What do you mean selected?
selection2
Recommendation 12. The HET should extend the use of satisfaction
surveys to a wider group than just those that receive a final RSR. In
addition, the survey methodology should be open to public scrutiny.

Is the HET consistent?
inconsistent
no5
Inconsistencies exist in how cases are dealt with and when families engage with the HET and when they do not.
Are all families treated equally?
equal
no1
The families who choose to be represented by a solicitor or NGO – who, generally, are far more intrusive and probe the findings of the HET reports – are treated differently than those who are unrepresented
representation

Do families get the truth?
truth
no6
Families or their representatives have received a number of different versions of a RSR which can lead to them to think that changes are being made for the wrong reasons – rather than simply to deal with an error or omission.
inquiry1
Are the families fully involved?
involvement
no4
The HET is completing cases and delivering RSRs to families without engaging with them fully or
joking
answering the specific questions which the families wanted addressing.
Recommendation 13. The HET should introduce a system that tracks all
drafts or versions of its RSRs so that changes can be properly
documented and audited.
